Pollution affects each of us – whether it’s the air we breathe, the water we drink, or the soil where we grow crops. It is the biggest ecological cause of several physical and mental illnesses and premature deaths, especially among children, people with some medical diagnoses and the elderly. However, pollution does not affect everyone equally. People in the most deprived regions often live near contaminated sites or areas with heavy traffic. Pollution is also one of the main causes of biodiversity loss. It reduces the ability of ecosystems to perform functions such as carbon capture or decontamination.
Green Week 2021 is all about discovering the opportunities and challenges of the sustainable business ecosystem. We are excited to have Professor Katherine Richardson kicking off this year’s Green Week on a discussion about how to achieve sustainable development for all!
During this event, Professor Kathrine Richardson will discuss how we need to reassess our approach to sustainable change on a holistic level and what are important factors in reaching sustainability for all.
Join to learn more about planetary boundaries, sustainable development in a globalized world, and the aspects of the biodiversity crisis that is least as worrying as the climate crisis.
